There’s no place like home

Sell yourself better

Act in the moment but think in the long term

Decisions around home, property, where you live or even partners and/or your career are all likely this week, Libra. It’s important to think in the long term. You may be looking to move or even relocate to a new area. There’s a theme of change, of moving in, out or even moving on now as Mercury meets Pluto in your 4th and also impacts on Jupiter in your money zone and Uranus in your 7th. If money has been preventing you from quite literally ‘moving on’ with your life, this week could see its arrival. The 4th opposes your 10th – the house of career and reputation so we also have to look past your front door when transits like these occur. Obviously on a mundane level, where you live affects your status and how people see you. But this is your week to think, plan and act for the long term across so many areas. If you feel you are not in the ‘right’ place for career or even life progression, time to do something about this. Prepare for a long term situation to transform. This may also revolve around you and one other. Go or stay? An unexpected twist points the way.

Mars moves from your money zone and on into your 3rd this week. Business and professional ambitions soar as you get behind your ideas and actively push forward with them. Mars can have you taking a leadership role and also defending your ideas if necessary. Just be aware of the fine line between doing this and closing yourself off to collaboration or constructive changes. As the sign of partnerships, you are able to avoid this trap better than most as you lean towards collaboration and teamwork. Remember, nobody ever creates anything worthwhile in isolation. Job changes are possible under Mars in here as is escaping any dull or restrictive routines. Take action now to bring about positive change.

· Create, love, have fun

· What do you need to establish?

· Do you know what form you want love to take?

Start the year with the spotlight on your career ambitions as well as your home, family, security or ‘base’. The full Moon in your 10th casts a ripple effect across your entire work, money and career sectors. In fact, anything and everything that concerns your job, income, home, possessions, talents and even what you have to give to others as in charitable contributions. In other words, your ‘base’ and your assets. You’ve been tussling with these areas for a while now and the start of 2018 could see you having to make a big decision or just commit to a course of action once and for all. Things must change. You must change them. You’re faced with the truth of this now. Nobody can make it happen but you. And putting it off serves no purpose. Once you know what action needs to be taken, please don’t procrastinate.

Look back over the past few years and see what has worked and what hasn’t. Especially when it comes to where you live or how you earn your income. It’s time to look at all this objectively and to apply what you have learned to continue to build for the future. You could see a big decision looming around where you live or even your career. Expect a big and lasting transformation to occur at some point in the next year. The question lying over this may be: where or what is home for you? If you need to move or even begin to create this, the new Moon in your 4th and the Moon’s ruling house on the 17th, could mark the opportunity to do this.

Ruler Venus is in your 4th up until the 18th when she leaves for your fabulous 5th – more on this in a moment. Before she gets there she continues to make significant cash and self-worth generating angles to Jupiter in your money house (and her ruling one) as well as Neptune in your work sector and all the planets currently amassed in your 4th –aside from

Saturn who she met at the end of last year and who remains at a very early degree of your 4th. Mars and Jupiter also meet in your money zone, inciting you to take whatever steps you can to improve your financial standing. This can be anything from a new job, side hustle, pitching for new business or actively asking for a raise or promotion. Stay focussed and by the time Mars exits your 2nd and arrives in your 3rd on the 25th, you could be looking at tangible results from your efforts.

This is a time to act with confidence especially when it comes to work and your earning ability. With the Sun joining Venus in your 5th house from the 20th, you should have no problem showcasing what you have to offer – whether this is on a personal or professional level. Venus adds that extra sparkle and allure and the Sun is now in its ruling house in your chart. With Venus also in here this is one of the best periods for romance, to make that lasting impression, to have fun, to create and to scintillate and shine doing what you love. Tap into playfulness, optimism and passion. It’s an intoxicating mix – not just for you but also those who come into contact with you. They can’t help but be drawn closer! See who or what enters your orbit now. You have Mercury poised to enter here on the 31st – a significant day as we have a blue Moon in your 11th house on this day (and your 11th opposes your 5th house in your chart of course).

This is no ordinary blue Moon as it is not only eclipsed but falls conjunct Ceres in here. So, the eclipse means the blue Moon is also a red or blood Moon. Many of us have also been dealing events that began around the time of the total Solar eclipse in August last year. Solar eclipses ‘cover up’ or conceal. But then whatever they have concealed, is slowly revealed to us. This energy remains in effect until we get the next eclipse. On the 5th/11th house axis which is what we are dealing with here, you could find yourself dealing with lovers, children, creative and business ventures, your goals, groups or friends.

Ceres thrown into the mix here means anything that comes to light or has come to light, will be incredibly intense. By that I mean more intense than we would normally associate with a full Moon or a lunar eclipse. Some of you may be dealing with compromising or even loss around these issues. Or to have one thing you may have to give another up. There’s an element of ‘reaping what you sow’ with Ceres. Ceres is incredibly powerful so she can also have us looking at our power to attract what we want or where we have given our power away. The message of this eclipse is this: if you don’t like what has been revealed you have the power to change it. That is why a base is so useful and why you are being prompted by the universe to create one. It is where your power resides and the place from which all change, and all blessings, flow.

In a nutshell: Past, present or future loves feature. You’re being asked to put down roots and make a commitment. Who, where and what will you choose, Libra?

annual horoscope

Libra 2018 

Your love life is under the spotlight for most of 2018. Quirky Uranus has been given you quite the rollercoaster ride over the past seven years. 2018 Kicks off with Uranus turning direct in your house of love. Have you had shocks, surprises or revelations connected to an ex? If so things are calming down after the 2nd.

Having said that you are still keen to make radical decisions to find peace and harmony in your close relationships. Venus, your ruler, is joining forces with game changer Pluto in your home and family zone. If you’ve been waiting for an energy shift, Pluto could deliver. Be proactive and think about what you can do to give it a helping hand. The Sun is also conjunct Pluto on the same day giving you the confidence to say what you need and want from home and family.

2018 could be a spectacular year to invest or transform property, look out for an idea on the 16th when Jupiter the planet of good fortune in your money and security zone sextiles Pluto. With Saturn as your houseguest in your 4th, you are laying the foundations for something that truly sustains you. Home, family and your roots as well as your past will either be cemented or re-defined by you. There’s an element of putting the past in perspective here. Of looking to what truly sustains you and of establishing your priorities. You may move or buy property at this time. See Jupiter as your banker and Saturn handing you the keys. This is all about creating a future and thinking in the long term. You’re bringing a new maturity to this and also a new perspective. You make your own rules and perhaps, if you have long term issues around family, then to heal these. This may involve re-writing the rules about what family is to you. You can live on your own terms now and again, these are keys to your future.

February brings you the ability to bring about a deep healing as Venus conjuncts Neptune on the 21st.  This allows you to move into a space of self-love and forgiveness. 2018 is an empowering year for you. Through being compassionate with yourself, there comes a magical shift in your love life. There could be cosmic and karmic link and soul contracts operating here. Venus enters Aries and your 7th house of love on the 6th March further enhancing the cosmic magic. Chances are your higher self has been sending you messages through dreams, insights  and just ‘gut’ feelings before all this transpires. You may have an intuitive sense someone is going to appear – and then they do. Tap into your inner knowing now.

Jupiter goes retro from the 9th March bringing in a possible return of potential from the past. Take meetings and hook up with past contacts who might prove more influential than you think. Where you in love with a project or had a lofty dream you let go of? Now is the chance to reboot, revamp and upcycle it. For best results be consistent. Nothing pays off like persistence. It’s time to dedicate yourself to a dream – and see it through.

The major news of 2018 is Uranus which moves from your relationship zone to your house of primal power. Uranus in the 8th house is going to make the next few years incredibly interesting.. Expect profound experiences and close encounters this year. Sex, money, life, death, rebirth and intense experiences. Uranus is waking up the depths of your soul; anything buried now  rises from the ashes. The Universe is asking you to examine your relationship to power and powerlessness and all your raw emotions and subconscious desires. Remember, all the parts of ourselves we fear, we disown – these ‘shadow’ elements are in fact where our power resides. Uranus in here can have us looking at these very differently and integrating them. We can reach own for new solutions, new ways of framing experiences and in fact see that our fears have no power over us – unless we choose to give it to them. 

On the 7th August Uranus will take you on a magical mystery tour into your past as Uranus seeks to surprise you with old patterns and tunnels of enlightenment. If there’s anything you have chosen not to deal with obsessions, sexual issues or losses from yesteryear Uranus will lend a helping hand. At first it might appear overwhelming but Uranus is intent on showing you your true power. Step out into a radical new dynamic now.  

Unlike Mercury, Venus your ruler rarely goes retrograde. So when she does on Oct 6 and in her ruling house in your chart (2nd), this is your cue to pause for serious thought. During the retrograde period she will move back into your sign and while she is moving backwards, Jupiter will shift out of your 2nd and on in to your 3rd. Is there an opportunity you have missed? You are being asked to look again or to be given a second chance opportunity. This is one of those rare cycles that can bring back something you missed –or return something that was always intended for you. Grab it when it reappears. 

Jupiter in your 3rd sees a yearlong focus on writing, communication, commerce, the internet, study, travel or just you discovering how far one idea can take you. Actually a very long way indeed. If you have a book, script, blog, website, business  or idea you need to share with the world, now is the time to do it. Jupiter will remain in your 3rd until December 2019 and remember, he is also in his ruling sign. This makes him extra expansive, optimistic and adventurous. It’s a time to dare to reach for that dream and Jupiter gives you the confidence to do that, while Uranus plugs you into the power of trying something new, innovative and maybe a little bit radical. The results could just be powerful magic with which to build the cornerstone for your future, Libra. Make 2018 the year of making the many opportunities around you realities.
